is wanting

Hello,

At the 2019 Wimbledon men's singles final match between Federer and Djocovic, one of the two commentators said "seems like Federer is wanting to finish more and more points at the net".

I was taught "want" was one of the verbs that was not usually used in a present progressive form.

Is this an exceptional situation?  Did the commentator mean to emphasize the strong passion that Federer had of finishing points at the net?
